Viola Davis powerful statement to Variety about Harvey Weinstein.
In her statement Viola Davis, words are just as strong as the characters she plays in her movies.
“The predator wants your silence. It feeds their power, entitlement AND they want it to feed your shame.”
“Our bodies are not the ‘spoils of war’… a trophy to be collected to fuel your ego,” she went on. “It’s OURS!!! It doesn’t belong to you!! And when you take it without permission, it DESTROYS…… like a virus!!!”
“To the predators.. Weinstein, the stranger, the relative, the boyfriend…. I say to you, ‘You can choose your sin but you don’t get to choose the consequences.’ To the victims…. I see you. I believe you… and I’m listening,” she concluded.
